THE NHS BIG TEA – What an outpouring of love

On 5th July, the whole nation brewed up the biggest of thank-yous for our NHS champions. Thank you to everyone who took part.

Paying in your donations

Now it’s time for the most important bit – to pay in your donations, and help support the NHS workers who do so much to support us. You can choose from:

  • Pay in online 
  • Arrange a bank transfer by emailing
  • Make out a cheque to ‘NHS Charities Together’, pop the cheque and your donation form in the Freepost envelope that came with your pack, and send in the post.

Text to donate

Whether you’ve hosted an NHS BigTea or not, you can also give a birthday gift to the NHS with a text. Simply text TEA to 70207 to give £5. Every pound (up to £50k) is being matched by our friends at Alpro, doubling the difference you will be making for the people at the heart of the NHS.

T&Cs: You will be charged £5, plus one message at your standard network rate. NHS Charities Together will receive 100% of your donation. Registered charity number 1186569.


It’s not too late to host an NHS Big Tea for our NHS Champions.

We say thanks for the 12 hour shifts in a full-face mask. For fighting to keep our loved ones alive. For being there to reassure us, console us, and celebrate with us.

Now, it’s our turn to care for them. At the NHS Big Tea, we fundraise for the wellbeing and welfare of every nurse and night porter, every counsellor and carer, every surgeon and support worker – every one of the NHS champions who do so much to protect us.
